As we reflect on another record-breaking year, it's impossible not to acknowledge the impact COVID-19 has had on Co-operative Education at the University of Waterloo. Practically overnight, Co-operative Education shifted our operations to ensure we could work with our students, employers, faculties, academic support units and staff to provide quality work-integrated learning experiences during this time. I'm proud to say that we also developed a number of new innovations in our programming - such as moving all co-op interviews and services to a digital landscape, introducing bulk hiring opportunities and leveraging additional funding to create more jobs. Throughout all of this rapid change, the resilience of our students, the collaboration with faculty and the unwavering support from our employers, has enabled us to grow and thrive.

Hundreds of students, staff and employers attended co-op interviews, career advice and workshops.
Three days later, everything changed drastically.
